About me

I am a physics Ph.D. employed at the (Ludwig-Maximilians) University of Munich (LMU).
In my free time, I write computer programs (normally using C or C++) dealing with a large range of different things. Another hobby of mine is designing and building electronic circuits and devices, but I am also spend some time doing computer graphics (raytracing), some digital photography, sports, and other things...

Since beginning of 1996, I am using GNU/Linux as my work and development platform because it is simply the most suitable environment for (most of) the things I am do. There is no other platform which can compete regarding price and availability of development tools (as well as a "community" and the openness of the design).

About this home page

This home page is hosted on a dedicated server running Debian Linux and is shared and administered by a group of 5 people. We host around a dozen virtual sites on our Apache HTTP server.

The HTML pages were all hand-written by me using nedit and post-processed with WML (for uniform header, footer, etc.). Some parts are automatically generated using self-written perl scrips (such as sitemap).
The pages are proud to come with little obverhead, to be fully useful even if JavaScript is disabled, and to be well-readable in any browser (including text-only w3m and lynx).
All pages which have the "Valid HTML 4.01" icon on the bottom should be clean and valid HTML 4.01 (transitional). In case you find that I am wrong, shout at me.
